Class action law firm Maurice Blackburn says it will launch a case against Uber imminently on behalf of more than 1000 taxi and hire car drivers, operators and licence holders, with the lawyers claiming the ride share giant could be forced to pay "hundreds of millions of dollars".

The firm is poised to file a statement of claim against Uber in the Victorian Supreme Court after spending about a year investigating whether the company operated illegally in Victoria from April 2014 to July 2017.

The firm is set to allege that Uber engaged in conspiracy by unlawful means, causing harm to drivers and operators in the industry.
